I used to have an '87 Accord seadn (2.0/2bbl/5spd) that developed a
habit of burning oil REAL BAD when it was cold, but as soon as it warmed
up, the oil burning cleared up completely - flew thru emissions test, no
problems. It was suggested a worn valve seal was the culprit (would
expand and close up once warm), so I had the head rebuilt, to no avail.
Anyway, I lived with it (as did my neighbors) for a while until I wrote
the car off...
Now I've picked up an '87 Accord hatchback, with the same engine and the
same problem, though not as bad (yet). The thing runs great,
compression to spare; I suspect the engine was rebuilt not too long ago,
because it goes like stink. There's gotta be something else.
Two out of three near-identicals Accords now with this problem - is this
a known thing? Is there a known fix?
Only other possible thing I can think of is the PCV valve, which I
couldn't replace on the first car because I could never get the %@#*$&
thing out of the @^$#)# manifold... now I've managed to get it loose and
replace it on this one, and just waiting to get the alternator working
again to try it out. Unless someone has another suggestion?
